Love my Cavaliers

I originally posted this in the SM forum, but maybe it's better here in general discussion. I have just made the observation that Riley (my SM dog) and Oz (malformation with mild herniation but no syrinxes) bunny hop up stairs. My other two just walk, alternating legs as they go up. Is there a connection between this behavior and SM? I know there is a link with SM and bunny hopping when walking, but does that translate into going up stairs also? Or do dogs without SM also bunny hop up the stairs?
